Restore Vision 20/20 Initiative

Every year, the Foundation Fighting Blindness funds millions of dollars of research taking place in hospitals and universities across Canada. This research is the backbone of our organization and our primary tool for identifying causes, treatments and, ultimately, cures for retinal eye diseases.

The goal of Restore Vision 20/20 is to support world-class research teams with the capacity to initiate clinical trials to test innovative treatments for late-stage retinal degeneration.

To achieve this goal, Restore Vision 20/20 will fund essential research, facilitate strategic international collaborations and provide financial, technical, administrative, and commercialization support.
